Have been home all week with a troubling stomach …
lousy sleeping and no energy…
Soo happy for having Spring around the corner so this will end soon.. 
I blame everything in winter..;o)
On a very HAPPY note…
I found one wonderful RAK  gift in my mail  this week… 
and when I say wonderful… I mean wonderful… :o)
All the way from Australia….
and she  also thought of Viktor 
and added chocolate
(the ones he love with Aussie animals on… :o) 
He smiled and said… -Oh… mum… it is a year since I tasted them… 
So he will have a happy candy day on Saturday…
ANd  a key ring with a Kangaroo and light… 
(very exciting… ;o)
And for me there was a magnet from New Zealand….
dont know the flower.. so please help… :o)
And one of her LOVELY pouches…
It is so Pretty… 
and the most wonderful pillowcases… 
with crocheted edge… 
ahhh… they are sooo PRETTY… 
I borrowed the picture from Janets blog…
(hope it was ok with you  Janet..:o)
They will be just wonderful in my bedroom…….
(maybe this will be the start for a quilt I have had in mind for some years now…)
Thankyou so much Janet 
for your fantastic gifts for me 
(and Viktor) 
Now I can say Spring is on its way… 
First flowers… :o))
On the Sewing front… not as much as I wanted have happened …
Have been struggling with my Turnabout quilt…
QUILTING!!!!
Thread breakages… lots of them.. 
guess my mood didn’t become better with a stomach that
 wouldn’t cooperate at all… 
But one thing I found out… 
My Machine don’t like to quilt too fast…  :o)
then the thread breaks…
So when I moved on to a smaller quilt it went better.. 
BUT SLOW.. sigh… 
Have lots to learn .. and I practice on my quilts…  
So this is what I have been up to…

I was home alone…. 
The guys were occupied with tennis…
Viktor at Tennis camp and Lars enlisted as cook for the camp!!!
So this meant …
SEWING FOR ME…
Oh happy days… 
So I started to sew my little teeny weeny little nine patches together..
and prepared for quilting.. 
draw out the design….
DAISIES…
Good practice I thought.. 
Watch and learn Belinda…lol…
This is not how to do it!!!
My machine was NOT at a happy mood.. 
think I have left it lonely for too long!!!!
So this is what happened…
*Frayed thread
*So I changed the needles twice…
*More fraying…
*Changing the threads twice….
*Skipped stitches….
*Oiled and patted the machine and said 
I love you…
Do you think this worked… ????
NO WAY!!!
Ok..  I fought and I wrestled my little piece of ART
size 10 x15 inches …  ( sigh) *S*until…
TEA TIME… 
SIGH!!!!
Needed a break
and what could be better than this….
My lovely friend Åsa came over for tea…
it was ages since we met and we had a lot to catch up on!!!
And she sure knew how to make me happy again…
She had this with her…
Lots and lots of
wonderful birthday gifties...
(better late than never… and they were so perfectly timed…
and the company too…:o)
Do you want to see???
Thought so… *S*
OH MY!!!!!
I love them all…
Thankyou so much ÅSA!!!!
Hope it wont be so long before next visit…*S*
Ahhh.. that was a lovely break!!!
So .. with heavy steps… I climbed the stairs…
the daisies…
SIGH…
But finally
I had them stitched over my “big “quilt…
but not happy…
All I can say I practised my starts and stops…*S*
And this little machine is going to the sewing machine doctor 
at the end of September..
(WHEN I WILL TRAVEL TO NORWAY TO HAVE A CLASS WITH LEANNE BEASLEY AND GAIL PAN!!!! )
Oh yes you are.. dont say anything else.. 
I hear you mumble upstairs…
I know you did good when we sewed on some gifts..
but the quilting…
no no.. 
So off to the doctor!!!
And all of a sudden the boys returned home…
on Sunday…
And all I had sewn was two little gifts… **S**
That´s life!!!
The week have been filled with work…
sore finger..
(Oh yes.. not good.. 
so I have been going down a little in worktime)
Lovely mail in the mailbox…
Back with that soon…
This weekend..
I will have my yearly fun…*S*
picking up potatoes at Mum and Dads farm…
so sore finger and aching back on 
Sunday…
See you after the weekend!!!
